runDisney News & Updates

It has been quite an exciting few weeks in the world of runDisney. Race season officially began over Labor Day weekend with the Disneyland Half Marathon and Jimmy Gabrow set a new course record by winning the race in 1:05! Cars Land was the main focus of the weekend beginning with the Cars Land 5K Rally that finished with racers running down Route 66. Half marathoners also had the chance to run through Cars Land on their course, many through a sea of neon in the morning darkness. This was also the last chance to run in California to get the coveted Coast to Coast medal for 2012.

A few days after the Disneyland Half Marathon, the Walt Disney World 20th Anniversary Marathon sold out. Registrations had been sitting stagnant for a while, but it looks like a ton of people caught the runDisney bug after the race. The race sold out in a short 5 months to the record number of 25,000 people running in the marathon (me included!). This is the fastest the marathon has ever sold out in it's 20 year history. I guess everyone wants that 20th anniversary medal.

Speaking of that medal, runDisney released the new designs for the Walt Disney World Marathon and Half Marathon in August through a fun game on Facebook called The Great Medal Caper. The backstory was that Donald was very jealous that Mickey was getting a new medal for the 20th anniversary, so he stole the design and took off on a cross-country adventure. He would only give the design back if he got a new design of his own for the half marathon. As more likes were received on the page, the more would be revealed about the race and the medal. It was a great way to build up the anticipation to the big reveal. Check it out!
